‘Jasprit Bumrah mein confidence nahi tha, uska awkward bowling action…’: Ramiz Raja lauds Indian star after T20 World Cup heroics | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: While speaking on the gradual downfall of Pakistan’s pace attack, former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has hailed Indian pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah as a ‘legend in all three formats”.
“In my book, Jasprit Bumrah is a legend in all three formats. There is no one greater who has played all three formats. (Toh aap dekh rahe hai, ek ladka kaha se utha hai, usme confidence nahi tha, uska awkward bowling action hain) So you can see, where this boy came from, he lacked confidence, had an awkward bowling action.He was unfit, but he came back, and now he has made India win the World Cup,” Ramiz Raja said on his YouTube channel.

Bumrah’s exceptional performance in the T20 World Cup 2024 has earned him a plethora of plaudits, with his remarkable achievement of taking 15 wickets from eight matches with an economy rate of 4.17 throughout the tournament making him the Man of the Tournament.

His ability to consistently deliver match-winning spells under immense pressure has made him an indispensable member of the Indian team across all formats.
However, as India returned home with the trophy, Bumrah faced an unpredictable question regarding his potential retirement from T20I cricket. However, the pace spearhead put to rest any speculation by declaring, “It’s (my retirement) a long way away. I have just started. Hopefully, it is far away now.”

DO or DIE Situation For Pakistan Cricket | Ramiz Speaks

Bumrah’s statement comes at a time when three of India’s most prominent players – captain Rohit Sharma, star batsman Virat Kohli, and versatile all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja – have announced their retirement from T20I cricket.
While these retirements mark the end of an era for Indian cricket, Bumrah’s decision to continue playing T20Is means that the team will retain one of its most valuable assets in the shortest format.
